..hooded merganser! Gonna mount this guy for sure! I watched the drake and hen fly around my spread then land about 150 yards away. They started to swim the bankline headed the opposite direction so I just figured it was a lost cause and diverted my attention back to my spread. A few minutes later some teal come soaring in doing mach 1 and I do my civic duty and proceed to unload on them. A few seconds later I catch movement out of the corner of my eye, the two hoodies were headed right for me. All I had was one shell left in the chamber so I picked out the drake and hoped for a good shot. Dropped him.

Nice! Mounting them is about the only good use... they do not make very good table fare.

Congrats! One of the coolest mounts there are IMO especially in a sitting or swimming pose.

My very first two ducks were a pair of hooded mergansers. Made a nice mount.

I tried to eat the first one I shot about twenty years ago. I am not much on mounts so I have not shot another one since. They are TERRIBLE
